Enhanced Control4 driver from Autonomic30 January 2015
Whole-house music systems developer Autonomic has released an enhanced Control4 driver that delivers the Mirage Music Player functionality to users of Control4 automation systems.
Autonomic says its new Control4 driver improves upon the user experience by making popular features more readily visible and easier to enjoy.
Once installed, large icons guide users to one-button access to streaming services such as Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, Sirius/XM and others. Successive buttons call attention to local content, favourites, playlists and Autonomic’s TuneBridge, including a new Snapshot feature.
According to Autonomic, users can quickly and intuitively create a Pandora station based on any artist or track that catches their attention. Other feature enhancements include global zone control, the ability to create or clear playlists and queues and a user interface matching the look and feel of Control4’s OS 2.6 Listen experience.
The new functionality follows Autonomic’s recent unveiling of the Mirage Music Player MMS-2A, which is available with pre-programmed modules to integrate with all of the major control systems: Crestron, RTI, Elan, AMX, and Control4.
Alternative control options include the Mirage Media Controller app for iOS and Android devices, Airplay control and the Mirage Web Interface.
Autonomic is now offering Mirage Audio System 2 or 5-stream base packs based on its MMS-2A and MMS-5A music players, giving integrators a complete range of high-resolution whole-house audio distribution systems.
